We visited 4 years ago and found, on our return, that it was, if anything, even better. It is run by a lovely Dutch couple who are both friendly and extremely helpful.
Our room was large and comfortable while the pool and area around are very spacious and overlooked by beautiful trees. Great breakfasts and a large lounge with coffee constantly available. We even found our car had been washed while we were there.
The village of Swellendam is charming and, although a fair walk from Bloomestate (20 minutes or so), well worth visiting. About 4 or 5 decent restaurants and a reliable and cheap taxi service in the evening complete the picture. Oh and there's a National Park close by with several good walks.

We were lucky enough to spend a night at Bloomestate for one night last month and it was superb . The main house is very modern with an excellent breakfast room serving an excellent breakfast .The grounds are large with a beautiful natural wooded area with a pond and there is a very pleasant swimming pool . We were booked into an excellent local restaurant for dinner .The rooms are in separate outbuildings and are extremely comfortable . I would thoroughly recommend Bloomestate to anyone breaking their journey from Cape Town to the Garden Route .

A place to relax. Carla and Maarten are excellent hosts. The breakfast was fantastic. Beautiful garden with mountain view. Our car was very dirty after going through the Baviaanskloof. We were very happy when our car was cleaned without asking.

Bloomestate is an hidden gem situated in Swellendam. Carla & Maarten build the perfect hideaway in Swellendam. We are grateful to stay at Bloomestate and enjoyed the hospitality, rooms, pool and the relaxt atmosphere. Lovely eggs and I can highly recommended the omelette Vesuvius.

Enjoyed our return visit to Bloomestate immensely. We received a warm welcome from Carla and Maarten to this oasis of peace and serenity. Nothing is overlooked. Suites, garden, lounge and of course the wonderful breakfasts. Loved the candles in the trees in the evening and the car wash in the morning. Certainly deserves a 5 star rating.
